Small World

I haven't accomplished much sewing this summer, 
but I have had some quilter friends visit me and my fair city.

In June, Kathy Doughty, Liesel and Carolyn of Material Obsession in Australia arrived. 
We toured Seattle, including the Dale Chihuly Gardens, (pictured here)
before they headed north to teach.
Toodle-oo, mates!

In July, Ana Maria Perna arrived from Spain with her husband, Ruben.  
She was celebrating her 60th birthday with a tour of the Western states
and Quilters Affair in Sisters, Oregon.
Adios, amigos!

In August, Carol Veillon of Quiltmania and her husband, Jean, came from France.
They toured the Northwest on a motorcycle and stopped by my house.
Au revoir mes amis!

All were very fun visits!  I hope to see all of them again.  

As quilt-makers, we're so fortunate to have a passion that allows us to cross borders and oceans and still have so much in common with each other!

I am getting back to sewing again, and will have something to show soon.
See ya later, alligator!
